How Much Sugar Is In Your Fizzy Drink?

On Monday 30th of July, Te Ngahere has been learning how much sugar is in common drinks we drink often. We had to decide if it was something you should drink everyday, sometimes or occasionally. Did you know that e2 has 24 teaspoons of sugar in a 750ml bottle? That’s heaps of sugar people are drinking. The daily intake of sugar is 6 teaspoons of sugar for girls and 9 teaspoons for boys. That means you would be drinking more than enough sugar.

Algebra

On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, we have been working on Algebra. Algebra is a type of maths when you replace certain numbers with letters in equations. We had to fill in the missing numbers in patterns and find out the rule. I found it quite confusing that we had to write the answers separately from the questions. Here is my answers down below.

Rat Traps - Inquiry - Bay Bush Action

As part of our inquiry this term we have been given some  rat traps by Bay Bush Action. We check the traps everyday Last week, we checked the rat traps Brad and Stella gave us and we got a rat and a mice. Each trap has a number and we use this to log our catch onto a website. Our goal is to become the first pest-free school in New Zealand. Here are the photos down below.



Kereru Presentation - Panui

For the past two weeks in Te Ngahere, we were studying about native and endemic animals and plants to New Zealand.  WALT make connections between what we already know and what we read. My partner and I chose Kereru. We had to include a bunch of important questions to add such as where it lives, what it eats, threats, interesting facts, why we should protect it and what job it does in the ngahere. We could also choose a couple of questions we wanted to find out about  too. I think we did well gathering our information and paragraphing it into our own words. Here’s our presentation down below.

Bay Bush Action

Last week in Te Ngahere, Stella and Brad from Bay Bush Action came to our class to talk to us about Native birds and animals, a topic we were studying about in our Panui. They gave us stuffed possums to pass around. Brad had a brilliant idea to give our school 10 mice traps to become to first mice-free school in New Zealand. One of the pupil from our school, Lennix, a member of Bay Bush Action was in charge of checking the mice traps. He chooses a boy and a girl to help them everyday. Here are a couple photos.

Descriptive Writing - Moment In Time

Last week in Te Ngahere, we have been doing descriptive writing about Te Ngahere.  WALT  use the correct structure to describe a moment in time. After we write everything down, we chose a learning buddy to check our writing. I think I did well at choosing descriptive and specific language. This is my first draft, enjoy!  

Beautiful leaves hang off light green branches of a Ponga Tree. Sunlight pierces through small gaps within the thick bushy leaves. The forest floor, overflowing with light brown leaves, softly crackling each step. Birds sing their unique, dazzling song, blessing your ears. Little skinks scampering around, trying to bend with the leaves. A dense and rough oak tree stood aside you. It’s branches appeared as if they could reach the heavens. The smell of damp bark lurks around your nostrils. Little rain droplets balance upon thin strips of grass.

The mystical forest on a forever stretch, shedding its beauty.

Explanation Writing - Healthy Ecosystems

For the past term, Te Ngahere has been working on our healthy ecosystem explanation. Our WALT use the correct structure to write an explanation. We had to explain what is a healthy ecosystem and what is within it. What helped me in my learning was checking over my work.  I thought it fun when I had to explain what are producers, consumers, decomposer and inorganic and organic matter. What I found hard was understanding what the teacher was asking me to do. I think I did a really good job and I am very happy with my final product.
